Hello Everybody! This is your Club Insider Publisher and Tribal Leader Since 1993 checking in with our 299th monthly edition of Club Insider! Yahoo! We've almost reached our 300th Edition Milestone, and if the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise, we'll hit 300 in December! Double Yahoo!

Is America a GREAT country, or what? I'm writing this Note on Thursday, November 8th, two days after the very important Mid-Term Elections across America. Again, things are in turmoil in Florida. Plus, here in Georgia, things still haven't been decided. But, I still strongly believe that Americans have the right to hear the ideas and plans of those who aspire to govern us and then vote to choose the candidates we believe will be best to serve our country and our communities. To me, that is one of the greatest parts of being an American. God Bless America!

CONGRATULATIONS to our friends PAMELA KUFAHL and MARTY McCALLEN and their entire Club Industry Team on their excellent 32nd Annual Club Industry Show in Chicago, October 24 - 26th. For starters, they had a 21% increase in attendance, which is great news! Also, they had a nice cross section of what our Club Insider Roving Reporter, ANGIE PATTENGALE of NFPT, described as "events inside events," which made it a show with something for everyone to choose from. Please check out Angie's 2nd Annual Club Industry Report for Club Insider on Page #29. Congratulations also to ANDREA LEONARD, a cancer survivor and trainer who founded the Cancer Exercise Training Institute, as she received the 2019 Trainer of the Year Award from PFP Magazine. Congratulations Andrea! Finally, be sure to Save The Date of October 13 - 15th, 2019 for next year's Club Industry Show.

Speaking of Saving The Date... IF you've not already done so, please take a moment now to Save The Date for IHRSA's 2019 Convention and Trade Show in San Diego, March 13 - 17th, 2019, as IHRSA's going to be celebrating its 38th Anniversary. We hope you will join us in what I think is the most beautiful city in the world, San Diego, California! Check out the new IHRSA Ad on Page #11 of this edition.

•By now, I'm sure you've heard the terrible news out of Tallahassee, Florida, where on November 2nd, another lunatic, this one now called the late SCOTT BEIERLE, age 40, went into Hot Yoga Tallahassee posing as a customer and opened fire, killing two people and injuring five others. One of those killed was the 21-year old, MAURA BINKLEY, of Atlanta. Reportedly, he had been arrested twice before, once on battery charges against women. He killed himself after taking two innocent lives.
